Mixed Heritage Day at Dodger Stadium

IMG_5683Last year around this time I was with my family at Filipino Heritage Night at Dodger Stadium. It was at that game that my then 7-year-old son, Luke, asked if there was a special day at Dodger Stadium that was for kids that were multiracial. By the time we were singing “Take Me Out To The Ballgame” I had decided I would answer that question posed by Luke by reaching out to the LA Dodgers and creating a Mixed Heritage Day.

The next day I pitched them the idea of Mixed Heritage Day and they accepted.

Along with my co-founder of MultiCulti Corner, Delia Douglas Haight, we set out to produce the best inaugural Mixed Heritage Day at Dodger Stadium we could.

With the help of several sponsors we achieved that.

On August 27, 2016 we met at Dodger Stadium and walked the exact route the Dodger players take to get to the field. While walking through we learned about the wonderful history of the Dodgers and got to see all the trophies.

On on the field, we gathered to be recognized by the office of Los Angeles Mayor, Eric Garcetti.
